The Secret Rooms of Hotel Jama
Hotel Jama is not an ordinary hotel. It has some secret rooms, where unusual hotel activities took place in former Yugoslavia. The doors have been opened to reveal a world of secrets. Join a tour to discover what was really going on in these rooms back in the day.
Since it was built in 1971, Hotel Jama has accommodated millions of visitors to the world-famous Postojna Cave. But it used to be more than just an ordinary hotel. Up until 1991, the hotel had lived a double life, which was not revealed until its renovation in 2016. The secret rooms inside the hotel bear witness to the activities of the secret services of the former system and to the bygone times. Hidden deep inside the hotel building is a communications centre of a very special kind, which raises more questions than it answers.
WHO built it, WHAT was going on there, WHAT was it used for and WHY was it secret?
The stories that took place behind the tightly closed doors of the secret rooms are firing people’s imagination and causing quite a stir. Everything you hear and see may be true. Everything you hear and see may be a lie.
